Morocco and Vietnam agreed on Tuesday in Hanoi to take concrete actions to strengthen bilateral cooperation in several areas, including agriculture, fisheries, aquaculture, education and training.

At the 4th session of the Joint Committee, which was co-chaired by Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Mounia Boucetta, and Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Vu Hong Nam, the two sides underlined the need to take advantage of the two countries’ economic potential, including through the Moroccan-Vietnamese business council and the exchange of business delegations.

During the 5th session of political consultations between the two countries, Morocco and Vietnam discussed the means to develop bilateral relations, in addition to regional and international issues of common interest.

In this regard, the two sides noted a broad convergence in their views on the topics discussed.

Both parties also underscored the importance of the role that the two countries can play as gateways to Africa and South East Asia.

The meeting of the joint committee was marked by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation between the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs of Vietnam and the Ministry of Employment and Professional Integration of Morocco, and a Memorandum of Understanding between the Vietnam Maritime University and Morocco’s Higher Institute of Maritime Studies.
